What is LimmudBoston?
LimmudBoston is more than just an all-day conference of Jewish learning. It’s a happening, a Jewish learningfest of culture and identity. From storytelling, music and meditation to Torah and Talmud, LimmudBoston offers inspiration and education – engaging beginners and scholars alike. Discuss, listen, watch and wonder–in workshops that explore lifecycle, Israel, spirituality and identity. Dance and clap; sing and shop; bake and taste!
No matter where you are on the spectrum of Jewish living, there is more to learn and more to do. As we learn from Pirke Avot, “Turn it and turn it for everything is in it, and through it you will perceive clearly.” — Pirkei Avot, Chapters of the Sages. 5:26
LimmudBoston is an innovative, volunteer-driven celebration of Jewish lifelong learning for the entire community, beginner to scholar and young to young-at-heart. We present the best in Jewish scholarship, arts, music and community opportunities.
One of 60+ Limmud conferences worldwide that model the very successful Limmud UK, LimmudBoston recognizes that everyone is a learner—and everyone can be a presenter. LimmudBoston offers over 100 learning presentations and hands-on sessions covering Torah text, Jewish identity, movement, meditation, music, food, lifecycle, theory and practice—and more.
The Camp Limmud program offers child care and programming for children ages 3-14. Presenters from LimmudBoston have also presented for the Camp Limmud kids. Camp Limmud participation is by reservation only.
